Saturday TV Ratings 5/30/20: Despicable Me 2, The Last Dance and 48 Hours Lead on Preempted Night (UPDATED)

On a night with heavy preemptions due to protest coverage, a 0.3 was all it took to lead the night.

Despicable Me 2 was one of the few programs of the day that was not a repeat of a weekly series. The film drew a 0.3 and tied for first for the night. Behind it, a heavily preempted SNL Vintage hosted by Charles Barkley was down to 0.2.

ABC had a repeat of The Last Dance at 8 with a 0.3, followed by a 0.3 for their nationwide special report on the protests in response to George Floyd's murder. It also drew 0.3, enough to give ABC the nightly win.

CBS had a weaker night with 0.2 repeats of Game On! and 48 Hours, followed by an original (?) episode of 48 Hours at 10. The 10 PM hour was the only one to hit 0.3.

Fox had repeats of Flirty Dancing and LEGO Masters. Nobody cared.

Finals Update: Despicable Me 2 (-0.2), SNL Vintage (-0.2) and repeats of The Last Dance (-0.3), Game On! (-0.2), 48 Hours (-0.2), Flirty Dancing (-0.1) and LEGO Masters (-0.1) adjusted down.
